Distance from place to place

We will be arriving late at night from the USA, and not worth staying at a hotel, so we will spend the night at the airport. I would like to get to Residence Inn, Marriott hotel in Halifax from the Halifax International airport to pick up a rental car because I've been told to pick it up there rather than at the airport, to save extra charges. How far is the hotel from the airport? Is there public transportation to take us there. Also, how far is the hotel from the HI International Hostel, as we will be staying at the hostel. Thank you.

There is a bus service that can take you in to the city.

Check Metro Transit and the details should be there.

Not sure where the Hostel is located.

It is about a ten minute walk. I am curious about what parking arrangements you have.

Hi Maryann-n,

I am returning the car at the Marriott after our trip, then walking to the hostel, now that you mentioned it is only a 10 minute walk. That is great! Parking at the hostel is $7 a day. I've read that Halifax is a walkable city so we will use public transportation if need be. We would be taking a taxi at 5:30am to the airport, which costs about $65, a small savings of $7, instead of paying for the extra 2 days and parking at the hostel. But it'll cost for parking in the city when we do sightseeing. Walking and public trans. will suffice. Thank you for your help.
